Project description

The aim of this project is to study oblique subject-like arguments in Contemporary Romanian and their evolution in Romanian texts from the 16th century until now, in order to verify whether decline, stability or increase in productivity of non-canonical subject marking can be observed, bringing Romanian closer to or further away from the Standard Average European type.
